Spokesman: "Abramovich neither detained nor questioned in US."Sport
Roman Abramovich was neither detained nor arrested by the FBI, a representative of the billionaire owner of London’s Chelsea FC told R-Sport news agency on Tuesday.
John Mann thus denied an earlier statement by Moscow-based lawyer Alexander Dobrovinsky who said that Abramovich had been questioned by FBI agents over alleged corruption in Russia’s selection to host the 2018 World Football Cup finals.
The FBI earlier denied having arrested Abramovich during his stay in the United States.
